New Leeds Bradford-Southampton route

Eastern Airways is to expand its route network in the New Year to include services between Leeds Bradford International Airport and Southampton.

Leeds Bradford International Airport moved quickly to safeguard services after learning this week of Flybe’s intention to withdraw from operating this domestic route early next year.

According to the airport “Southampton is an important city linking regional businesses in Yorkshire particularly in the finance, insurance, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and construction industries. Eastern Airways new service will ensure the continuation of air links between two of the UK’s largest cities and provide quick and easy access to Hampshire avoiding the need for a lengthy road or rail journey.”

Eastern Airways will commence operations to Southampton from Leeds from 20 January, running three daily services Monday to Friday. Weekday services will depart Leeds at 06.50, 10.20 and 17.10 with return flights leaving Southampton at 08.20, 16.05 and 18.40. Flights are timed to allow a full business day in both cities. A Sunday departure from Leeds will be at 16.15, with a return flight leaving Southampton at 17.45.

In 2013 over 3.2 million passengers have flown from Leeds Bradford International Airport to 70 destinations across 24 countries in 2013.  www.easternairways.com  www.leedsbradfordairport.co.uk
